Delete all documents without deleting them from my computer or mobile devices

Delete all documents without deleting them from my computer or mobile devices

How can I delete all files and folders from the Dropbox without those being automatically being deleted from my computer? I just want to delete Dropbox but want all my files and folders to stay intact on my computer. Thank you for any help.

Unlink Dropbox from the mobile and computer by following https://help.dropbox.com/accounts-billing/settings-sign-in/device-list-remote-sign-out and then you can delete anything you wish at Dropbox online. 

 

The files will still be in the 'Dropbox' folder on your computer BUT wont then delete/change if you alter them elsewhere and you can move them out of that folder if you wish.
